Who Developed the Program?
The Howard County WSA has been developed by an Advisory Committee with members from University of Maryland Extension-Howard County, Howard County Office of Environmental Sustainability and Dept. of Public Works, Columbia Association, Howard County Legacy Leadership Institute for the Environment and the local volunteer community. We have benefited from the advice and cooperation of the Watershed Stewards Academies of Anne Arundel County and the National Capitol Region. Grant funding to develop this program came from National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Toyota Together Green, and Howard County.
